Martin “This handsome big ginger boy is a real charmer,” notes an ACC volunteer. “He is very playful with loads of energy and responds when you talk to him with a soft mew. He is a big head butter and rolls over onto his back to get as much attention as he can from you.” Fall in love with Martin at ACC’s mobile adoption event at the Fall Craftstavaganza in Chelsea on Saturday, or at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.

Smores “If you’re looking for smushy, gooey and delicious, Smores is the bun for you!” writes an ACC volunteer. “Smores has been at the shelter for a while and more so than other buns needs the warmth and love of a relaxing forever home. Just feed her good hay, fresh greens, some pellets, and a carrot slice here and there. Save the chocolate, marshmallows, and Graham crackers for the humans!  Meet Smores at ACC’s Manhattan Care Center, 326 E. 110th Street.
